A new video that compares Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) upcoming iPad 5 to the iPad 4 and iPad mini has been posted online by Chinese parts supplier SW-Box, MacRumors reports. Although previously leaked images that purport to show Apple’s fifth-generation rear iPad shell have already emerged online, this new, high-quality video features detailed measurements and an opportunity to see how the iPad 5 looks like when it is placed next to Apple’s older-generation tablets.

As noted in the video, the iPad 5 is shorter, narrower, and thinner than the iPad 4. The fifth-generation iPad measures 9.41 inches in height, 6.67 inches in width, and 0.28 inches (7.2 millimeters) in depth. In comparison, the iPad 4 is 9.5 inches in height, 7.31 inches in width, and 0.37 inches (9.4 millimeters) in depth.

The video also demonstrates that the iPad 5′s rear shell is considerably lighter than the iPad 4′s rear shell. While the iPad 4 casing weighs 146 grams, the iPad 5 casing weighs just 92 grams. These specifications appear to be in line with KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s predictions that the iPad 5 would be approximately 15 percent thinner and 25 percent to 33 percent lighter than the previous generation.
